    A great book for those interested in the field of advocacy and human rights This is a long critiue that includes a multitude of conflict cases like Burma Gaza Guatemala Sudan and Congo The author focuses on the failures in these conflicts and criticizes what he called irresponsible advocacy as he calls for a responsible and serious advocacy This is not a game advocates should not use such causes for their vested interests These conflicts harmed millions of innocent people who lost their kins because of the non stop disputes between different parties Advocates must bear in mind that any step the take will build up and in the end will constitute a national and international resolution that might affect the fate of whole nation Therefore they must be responsible because innocent people are expecting only that from them The author also emphasizes on inclusivity and interconnectedness between national and trans national actors to build a sophisticated and comprehensive narrative that takes into account all actors in any conflict In my opinion as we witness a new trend of advocacy which is usually owned by Western actors who in turn try to leverage their gov'ts to take an action Western countries should be responsible and take a neutral stance to solve such conflict Alas a lot of politicians and lobbyists are taking advantage of the ownership of advocacy to achieve personal or national interest that serve them only and totally ignore people who suffer
